Six Marks of a False Prophet

Dave Hunt, quoted in The Berean Call, Bend, Oregon, March 1997, p. 1

Any one of the Bible's six marks of false prophets is sufficient identification: Through signs and wonders they lead astray after false gods (Dt. 13:1-4) Their prophecies don't come to pass (Dt. 18:20-22) They contradict God's Word (Is. 8:20) They bear bad fruit (Mt. 7:18-20); All men speak well of them (Lk. 6:26) They deny that Jesus, the one and only Christ, has come once and for all in the flesh (I Jn. 4:3).
